Dr. Tony Medina is elated to be in the same company as Toni Morrison, however, their coupling is quite dismal: banned books for their dedication to telling Black stories.

As the national book ban on authors whose works fall under fallacious attacks on diversity, equity and inclusion rages on, Medina, author of “I Am Alfonso Jones” and “Love to Langston,” pens a piece about America’s relaxed attitudes toward the dangerous turn of the country’s war against Black culture, literature and history.

“Getting my book banned was not as devastating as it seems,” Medina says. “It’s a double-edged sword. It means, as Stephen King recently said of his own banning, ‘I must be doing something right.’”

For Black History Month, Howard University is highlighting the founders of niche, specialized entities that make The Mecca special grounds of education, connection and excellence.

Inabel Burns Lindsay, Ph.D., (B.A. '20) not only founded the Howard University School of Social Work, but pioneered the integration of sociocultural perspectives into social work and education. An advocate for social justice, her efforts have paved the way for today's concepts of multiculturalism and cultural competence.

“When we speak of culture, we are referring to the total life way of a people. It includes walking, talking, eating and dressing, as well as attitudes, standards, values, and beliefs. Culture is sometimes explained as the structures and processes designed by a society to meet and solve its problems.” wrote Lindsay in a 1967 article.

Her leadership faced and overcame the challenges of racism and within the profession and larger world, insisting on the profession's adherence to its core social justice values. Born into an era marked by Jim Crow laws, Lindsay's journey from a determined student at Howard University to a transformational leader is truly inspiring.

“Today, I continue this legacy by advocating that the profession engages in self-examination to ensure that we are agents of change and not the status quo," said current School of Social Work Dean Sandra Crewe, Ph.D. “We honor her guidance to focus on the inextricable link between our School, our University, and our profession--- [as] all three contribute to our excellence."

Throwback to the '90s at Howard University, during a golden age of Black culture! And guess who was right there, capturing it all? The Hilltop's very own Tamara Holmes (B.A. ‘94), up at 3 a.m., crafting the University's history with an Exacto knife and sheer determination.

Fast forward to today, as The Hilltop celebrates a century of storytelling, we're exploring the tales of those who lived, wrote, and breathed Howard's spirit into every printed word. From the vibrant streets of D.C. to the activism that defined a generation, The Hilltop was the heartbeat of Howard.

Holmes and fellow alumni share a legacy of dedication and curiosity, proving that a true Hilltopper knows no bounds in the pursuit of the story.

“If you go and look at The Hilltop at that time, you just get a taste of what’s going on on campus,” Holmes explains. “It has a different spirit with whatever time it is because the people are different, but it’s something that just captures what Howard is about in any given decade. You can just imagine and put yourself there.”

Feeling nostalgic? Intrigued by how history was penned by those who lived it? Read the full story of passion, activism, and timeless journalism on The Dig. Let's honor the past and inspire the future, together. Happy centennial to The Hilltop!

For Black History Month, Howard University is highlighting the founders of niche, specialized entities that make The Mecca special grounds of education, connection and excellence.

Alexander Thomas Augusta's achievements as the first Black medical professor in the U.S. once Howard's College of Medicine opened in 1868, and as one of the eight Union Army Black doctors, is a testament to resilience, courage, and dedication to his dreams and his community.

Dr. Augusta was initially denied an education in medicine from University of Pennsylvania for being a Black man, but moved north and received his bachelor's degree in medicine from Trinity College in Toronto.

Despite the obstacles thrown his way, he never lost sight of his goal to serve and uplift his race. "I was compelled to leave my native country, and come to this on account of prejudice against color... I am now prepared to practice it and would like to be in a position where I can be of use to my race."

His legacy is a guiding light of hope and a reminder that change is possible through perseverance and commitment.
